What is Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer is cancer that begins in the breasts and can spread to other parts of the body, and can occur in both men and women but is much more prevalent in women. It is the second most diagnosed cancer in women behind skin cancer. A lump found in the breast or changes in size or shape of the breast are the common symptoms of breast cancer, along with bloody discharge from the nipple, changes to the skin of the breast, inverted nipple, or a redness or dimpling of skin (like an orange) over the breast.
Many of our readers are looking for natural treatments for stage IV breast cancer, also called advanced or metastatic breast cancer. This stage means the breast cancer has spread to surrounding tissues and organs of the body, such as the lymph nodes, bones, liver, lungs, or brain.

04/25/2013: Tina from Los Angeles, Ca, Usa: "Hi, after 23 years of being cancer free I now was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer. It's not a fast growing one, and it was detected early so that's good. The usual treatment would be a Lumpectomy with Radiation afterwards. This treatment is not an option for me because I have had radiation before. I read that no cancer can survive in an alkalized body. I'm working on this since 4 days. Do you have any specific Advice for me regarding the alkalizing process quckly where I have a chance of getting rid of the cancer before having to do the Traditional Treatment which in my case would be a mastectomy and either chemotherapy or hormon Therapy afterwards.
I have one more question in this regards: how do I make sure to not get stuck in the 6.8 - 6.9 ph levels, since I read that they are dangerous to be in.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Tina"Replies
04/26/2013: Rsw from Uniontown, Oh replies: "Hi Tina, There are people on the LDN site who use it for cancer, along with PawPaw, alkalizing, IP6, and fasting from Sunday until Wednesday morning, then eating baking soda with some form of sugar that goes directly to the cancer cells. One man's wife had stage 4 breast cancer and her doctor now talks of long term cure. He is always willing to share their protocol if you search cancer on the site, the comments will come up and you can email people directly and privately. Obviously, I have read many excellent recommendations here, also. Best wishes."
04/26/2013: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "After listening to an interview from a doctor who had breast cancer for the second time, and was advised it would be terminal. She realised that in China it was called "rich womans disease" as only those who got it in China were rich and could afford Dairy. The only thing she could do was to cut out all dairy which she said wasn't as easy as it might seem, but checking everything in her diet was dairy free.. The tumour in her neck started shrinking, till it finally disapeared, her oncologist was astounded. If you google doctor with " breast cancer and dairy" you should be able to find her."
04/26/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Tina: Not to divert the question, but for others to answer; this looks like applying an Epsom Salt poultice or warm cloth would very much alkalize locally and more (detox)."
04/27/2013: Tina from Los Angeles, Ca, USA replies: "Thank You for your responses. I really appreciate your time and your advice. I will check into all of the above.
To Rsw from Uniontown: I'm not sure which LDN site you're referring to. There are several websites with LDN in the domain name. Would you please clarify. Thanks.
07/30/2009: Zeeka3 from Cairns, QLD, Australia: "Hi, I have just been diagnosed, with breast Cancer, My good friends sent me the baking powder recipe, which I am trying vefore I have any surgery. It has made me feel very good and pains in my legs and hips, seem to have gone. A few days ago I could hardly walk, I will let you know if the cure is real
I pray it is as I hate any pain zeeka3"
EC: Hi Zeeka3, can you please tell us which baking powder (in the USA we call it baking soda) recipe you are trying? Is it one of these?
08/01/2009: Zeeka3 from Cairns, Qld Australia replies: "Hi again, Well fate seems to be against me, It is,now a death sentence as they discovered the Cancer is all over my body and bones, not treatable. I still take the baking powder not soda with citric acid as the baking powder destroys the vitamin C. It may be too late for me, I didn't even know i had anything wrong until a week ago. But I am scared to death now I hate pain, and do not know how much to expect. Back-up seems to be rare here, I feel like I have been dumped. Hope you all get and keep well health is the best gift we have love to all. Zeeka3"
08/01/2009: Zeeka3 from Cairns, Qld Australia replies: "i THANK THOSE PEOPLE FOR THEIR RESPONSES TO MY NOTES. IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE SOMEONE KNOWLEDGEABLE TO TALK TO hAD A VERY BAD SLEEPLESS NIGHT LAST NIGHT, AS i HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY DRUGS AND i SPEWED ALL MY PAINKILLERS UP MY. BODY REJECTEDTHEM . this is so new to me as I thought I was a picture of health.
08/01/2009: Zeeka3 from Cairns, Qld Australia replies: "Hi ec, I am concerned now since your response, I have been stringently taking baking powder, but it should be baking soda. Hope I haven't done more harm than good. zeeka3"

04/23/2007: Janelle from Brisbane, Australia replies: "After reading a lot of comments regarding this remedy, it seems that people are getting confused between Bicarb Soda and Baking Soda. They are two different products. Could you please make it clear to those people who are referring to Bicarb Soda. Thanks.
4/24/2007: Janelle writes again: "Hi, I wrote to you yesterday asking if you could advise people about the difference between Baking Soda and Bicarbonate Soda. It seems that it was actually my mistake. In Australia and England (it seems) we don't refer to a product called Baking Soda. We call it Bicarb Soda. I think some people outside the US are getting confused because we also have Baking Powder which is a different product, usually Wheat/Corn flour with added Mineral Salts. Bicarb Soda is definately Sodium Bicarbonate and is the correct product. Hope this clears things up. Thanks for the great website."

Breast Cancer and Deodorant
[YEA] 01/15/2008: Erin from Fremont , Mi: "Breast Cancer History Breast cancer runs in my family. My aunt is fighting it now. Not to mention from using regular store bough underarm deodorant as a teen myself I use to get lumps under my arms/right in the pit area. They had to be lanced and drained at the hospital. From that point on I did alot of research and found that the aluminum they put in the deodorant clogs the glands under your arms which inturn are very close to the breast. I have not used store bought deodorant for about 15 yrs now-I only use all natural from health food store and never had a problem again. Just wanted to let you ladies and men too know to STOP USING REGULAR STORE BOUGHT DEODORANT ONLY USE NATURAL. Thank you have a wonderful week all"Replies
01/17/2008: Patti from Albany, USA replies: "I wanted to find out from Erin (Fremont, MI) what type/brand of Natural Deodorant she uses (hope it's okay to ask for the brand). I'ved tried several brands, but nothing seems to stop the underarm odor. Days when I know I'm going to be doing activities that will make me sweat, I'm forced to use regular deodorant (aluminum & all) to keep from offending people."

Patti from Albany, USA writes: "I wanted to find out from Erin (Fremont, MI) what type/brand of Natural Deodorant she uses (hope it's okay to ask for the brand)...."
Please tell her that the best thing that I have found is Baking soda. I have gone organic and was trying every organic deordorant on the market and I would still stink!! It was making me crazy, then I came here and read about everyone using BS with great results and IT IS TRUE! After my shower, I pat some in each armpit (I'm pretty liberal). And I have absolutley no underarm odor. Even in my wool sweaters which can really trap the smell...So, I put BS in a pretty bowl in the bathroom and use that. IT WORKS!"
05/19/2008: Sherri from Dallas, Tx replies: "I use Tea Tree Oil Deodrant, Tea Tree Oil toothpaste, Shampoo, Body Lotion, mouthwash. etc. It takes all odors away, is an essential oil. These products are awesome!!! You can buy them at a health food store and the oil itself is great for pain and muscle strain, and for jock itch, yeast under your arms, razor burn, you can put a drop in your bath water. I swear by them. If I get stopped up, or have a headache I will put some of the oil on my forehead or breath in the vapors and my sinus open up. The toothpaste is great for halitosis, and helps keep all tartar and tooth decay away!!"
Breast Cancer Prevention
[YEA] 11/20/2008: Joy from Richmond, VA, USA: "I am almost 61 years old, a widow with 3 sons, working, with average health issues for my age, nothing serious and nothing that Earth Clinic hasn't helped me with greatly. I take no medication other than supplements. I am writing because I feel passionately that there IS solid evidence that there is something every woman can do to drastically reduce her chances of getting breast cancer, and that is to not wear a bra at all....or to wear one NO MORE than 12 hours a day. I urge everyone to do research about this, because you have no particular reason to believe me. I have personally not worn a bra since the bra-burning 1960s. Needless to say, I have not had breast cancer, but my bra-wearing mother has. Don't listen to me; do some research and you will undoubtedly come to one book that is stunning in its conclusions. Once you understand the delicate and yet absolutely essential function of the lymphatic system (which is gravely compromised by tight clothing), you will be convinced. And believe me, after one week of going braless, I cannot believe you will ever be able to harness yourself in again. If you need a 'recipe,' I will pass on this: all-cotton camisoles or undershirts! They are so comfortable, winter and summer. They are not supportive, but they do help to preserve your modesty."Replies
[YEA] 11/20/2008: Suzi from Missoula, Montana replies: "Hello Joy.....Oh yes, absolutely....such pertinent information...I recall this warning years ago and have heeded it ever since. Makes perfect sense to me. I immediately unhinge my bra whenever I return home from 5 hours in workforce and on weekends, sans bra. It is just a habit now and I don't even think about it, like washing your hands, or brushing and flossing."
[YEA] 02/07/2007: M. Boyle from Birmingham, AL: "During the fall of 2005 I was put on a series of antibiotics for a period of 4 months treating a throat and gland problem. My Dr. referred me to a Nose Throat ear specialist. Test were done and this time I was diagnosed with Mono(from a patient I treated) Again more antibiotics I got worse night fevers swelling then the knots came I was then diagnosed with Lymphoma. Yes, the antibiotics played a big part, but there were other factors. One- tight wired bras were cutting the lymph tubes where the toxins could not flow. Also wearing bras to bed and wearing under panties with elastic bands around the waste and groin area which also cut lymph tubes. Ladies, get out of the tight under garments. This is a big factor in breast cancer because the toxins stop at the breast area when the lymph tubes are squeezed tight and cannot flow and remove the toxins."Replies
08/01/2009: Zeeka3 from Cairns, Qld Australia replies: "Yes Yea , I too came to the conclusion that bra's are dangerous, I remember my Mother had big heavey Boobs and the straps were done up so tight to hold them up, she developed a huge lump on her shoulder from the strap, She died from bone and breast Cancer too. also the upwards lift is quite unatural and must interfere with circulation, don't you think, as Boobs naturally drop down. Regards, Zeeka3"
04/07/2010: Meg from Seattle, Wa replies: "Pueraria Mirifica (also known as kwao krua) has many benefits, including: Breast firming and enlarging, better skin, anti-aging and stronger nails an hair. It grows in Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the region where this plant is grown is remarkable for its low rate of breast cancer and impressive longevity."
06/26/2010: Cynthia from Toledo, Oh replies: "Dear Meg,
I am very interested in Pueraria Mirifica. Where do you purchase Pueraria Mirifica? How much should you take?
02/24/2012: Jo from Redmond, Wa/usa replies: "I'm so sick of hearing about bras and breast cancer. I hardly ever wore a bra for 20 years, and I got diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer anyway. At age 39!"
Breast Cancer: Post-Treatment Remedies
02/06/2013: Julia from Sylva, Nc: "I had breast cancer back in 2004 and went through all the prescribed therapies, lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. The area around my lump was benign and the first lymph node was clear but they scare you into doing the therapies. Anyway, I have been doing good, not taking any medications, just trying to eat right and taking herbs and vitamins and eating lots of fruits and veggies. Well, I know this is normal but it scares me. My breast that was radiated is starting to feel more and more like rubber and I'm wondering is there anything out there that might help. I've used aloe gel right off the plant, used apple cider vinegar, castor oil, comfey salve and olive oil after showering but it seems to be getting worse. I do not want to go back through the drill with the doctors as I want to live a quality life and that involves no drugs which I do not trust, if you can help me in anyway please do, I still have my mammograms yearly as well as a yearly physical. Thank you very much."Replies
02/07/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Julia: I am no expert on radiation therapy side effects, but I do know that it can be as big a problem as the disease in which it's supposed to treat.
It simply seems wise to do some radiation and bad energy removal therapies found right here on E.C. which would include Magnet Therapy, Mineralization, and Alkalization. Read all the post in this category and begin these remedies.
Please update us on your protocols and progress."
05/04/2013: Andy from Grvll, Sc replies: "Hi, I have heard that mammograms are not always good and thermograms are better. Also, I have heard that oxygen therapy is good like using food grade hyrdrogen peroxide therapy. There is a book that tells about it... It's called the one minute cure or something like that and tells you how to dilute the peroxide and how to take it. You build it up slowly each day by how much you take but another thing is that sugar feeds on cancer and Doug Kaufmann from know the cause show says fungus mimics cancer and natural anti- fungals like oregano oil topically and interanally can help.. he also has the phase 1 diet which is very similar to the paleo diet to help as well."
07/04/2013: Barbara from Atlanta, Ga - Usa replies: "Please research hydrogen peroxide therapy (h2o2) before using internally (or on the body). Buy ONLY 35% food grade and dilute to 3%. A good source for info is: www.cancertutor.com"
Flax Seeds: Promising Remedy!
[YEA] 03/09/2008: Ruth from Ionia, Michigan: "my name is ruth,I used flax seed to cure my tumors . I would grind them in my coffee grinder . Then I would use about 2tsp a day and sprinkle them over my salad . I found it easier to eat them that way . I also would make flaxseed bread I would use about a 1/2 cup in my loaf of bread . It is very important to grind the flaxseed up to get the benfit of the seeds. Other wise the seeds will just pass right threw you . I did this for about a year and when I went back and had my ultra sound they were gone . I also had a tumor in my breast . I was benine but that also disappeared as well . I never tryed the BSM because I never heard about it working on tumors until now. I end up have a historectomy because my uterus fell . but I still take it so I don't get any tumors in my breast"
[NAY] 01/12/2013: Natalia from North Royalton, Oh: "Hello, my mom has been doing Gerson Therapy (cofee enemas, 13 juices a day, no salt, high potassium, high in potato diet) for almost a year. Her breast cancer has grown larger and hard and she developed nodules on her thyroid. We have contacted the Gerson clinic in California and they are suggesting for her to go for surgery to remove the tumor in her breast and her thyroid because her body is not battling it. They are trying to break all ties with us because the therapy didn't work. We are at a loss of words because the therapy has a large success rate. We believe it has to do with her thyroid and her high estrogen. Would you be able to give any advice? We do not know what to do because we know that surgery spreads the cancer. We live in Cleveland, OH. It is urgent. She is still doing the Gerson Therapy."Replies

01/14/2013: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Natalia: try to find time to read E.C. chapter on Cancer here: http://earthclinic.com/CURES/cancer.html. There is probably too much to digest in a few minutes but you can take notes (copy & paste) any or all remedies that are easy and can begin right away. Don't be afraid of taking too much nutritional supplements as there are very few contraindications or problems in that area; just fallow labels recommended doses. As for advanced nutrition that could be a life-saver, I would highly recommend cellfood or cellpower drops.
Keep us updated as to your progress."
02/23/2012: Chloe from San Francisco, Ca: "I had a bloody discharge from my breast. I healed it by painting lugol's iodine on it daily with a paintbrush, at least twice daily, alkalinizing my diet, consuming iodine rich foods, cutting out all sugar, caffeine and almost all protein. I ate mostly leafy greens, raw, and ate only the foods that gave me energy. I eliminated anything that made me feel tired. I have been discharge free for about 5 years now."
[YEA] 02/29/2008: Debra from Edmonton, Alberta: "Dr Derry from Vicotria on Vancouver Island has a book out about Breast Cancer and his research shows that taking 1 to 2 drops of iodine a day in a glass of water can help to prevent breast cancer. His book is very informative and gives a scientific reason why it works. I have been using Iodine this way for 6 years. I also use it on moles, tags and other skin conitions and it helps to make them small again. I have used it for sore throats too and it works wonderfully. Just use it sparingly as it can be toxic with too much use."
Miscellaneous Remedies and Supplements
[YEA] 07/20/2007: nancy from melville, new york: "over a year I was diagnosed with DCIS which is stage 0 breast cancer, non-invasive or pre-cancerous. The surgeons of course suggest masectomy. After studying internet, library, bookstore and disecting every word on pathology report I am convinced of diet change. i pretty much stopped drinking red wine (so much for red wine being good for you) I'm slim already but since going organic on meat, eggs, milk and taking Vitamins b, c, d,e, germanium, magnesium, beta-carotene, coq10, turmeric, DIM, liquid fish oil, ground flax seed, progesterone cream, I have in the past year lost my little stomach, I go to the toilet regularly which I never ever did sometimes more than once, my hair is thicker, my skin on my face is tighter, the stiffness I get in my joints at the end of the night is gone, I have stamina the entire day being able to move about without tiring and even not getting dizzy in the summer heat. I get lots of comments about my skin color looking good and it's all true. I can't pin point which supplement is doing what. I always used olive oil and love my green vegetables but obviously that wasn't enough to keep cancer from creeping in. I also use red palm oil (lots of tocotrienols and vitamin A) coconut oil too, I've drunk plenty of apple cider vinegar, it's like a shot of alcohol for me haha. I did have a urinary infection recently and decided to go the natural path using mannose-d. It seemed to work. I even found oil-pulling on your website. It really does make morning mouth go away. I'm a born again nutritionist. I want to spread the word to everyone. I've become obsessed with hydrogenated oil too. My boy is having a hard time getting snacks from me when I have to check every ingredient. Unfortunately for me, I will not go back to check on DCIS which by the way is 15% chance in 10 yrs of becoming invasive and 1.5% chance of spreading. Oh also my bosums are softer too. They were always lumpy my entire life. I've taken other things through the year like cesium, kefir, noni juice and I just bought aloe vera juice and grapefruit seed extract. Anything that could be good for you I do it. Ginger in hot water is great. I'm almost 48 and am feeling younger every month. I practically feel like a teenager again. If I do go off my routine like eating snacks or drinking a little wine I will get puffy faced in the morning or have a funny taste in my mouth. I don't think many women are as foolish or wise as I am in studying big time on this subject. The more I read the more I was exposed to and thanks to your website I have the oil-pulling to thank you for. This site is great for information. Thanks a lot"Replies
02/25/2010: Michael from Cuenca, Ecuador replies: "Dr. Bernhard Weber of NaturMedNet (www.naturmednet.de/) (the German cancer clinic using electro-carcinoma therapy against cancer) says they have success in 30-70% of their cases. Destroying tumors with electricity was a common procedure between 1907 and 1930 in the USA. Then the AMA and big drug companies took over the medical scene.

04/23/2010: Tom from Regina, Sk replies: "I don't know where to draw the line between medical advice and just advice, but there is a lot of studies and details on the net about using IODINE for tumors, and specifically breast tumors.
There are astounding per cent increases of everything from cancers to chronic fatigue to thyroid to sick building syndrome the past 25 years or so, and many say it's the abysmally low iodine intake in the world, except for Japan!
Key names to search would be Dr. Abraham, Dr. Brownstein, and Dr. Derry (Victoria, BC).
I understand that in the USA now since 2007, thanks to the DEA, no amount of LUGOL's iodine in its nearly 2-century old strength of 5/10% is available for personal purchase in a size over 1 30-ml bottle.
There's also SSKI, which as the name implies, is only the KI= Potassium iodide (reduced) form of iodine (no plain iodine). The SS= Super Saturated.
Some plain drug stores likely sell the small bottles of weaker mixed 'tincture' of iodine/iodide; some in water, some in ETHYL alcohol, and some in ISOPROPYL alcohol(this last one NOT to be taken internally ever, and not even reco for skin application.)
Hope this is helpful to you."
07/17/2010: J. from Little Rock, Ca replies: "I also had this experience with the tumor breaking through the skin and making a horrible wound for which I had to wear socks beneath my bra to absorb any weeping of the wound or blood which would spurt out if the wound were bumped (it was between the sternum and upper breast, almost exact location of L. Day's). This was a very large hard tumor, size of tennis ball. I had been putting tea tree oil on the site and decided this was not a good idea as it was getting worse so found a product and immediately begin using it 2-3 x daily and it completely healed the open wound within a week or two. The name of it is Argentyn, and is recommended for any type of wound, burn, blister abrasion, rash, ulceration, etc. Two ingredients are silver hydrosol and aloe. This has nothing to do with shrinking the tumor but is good for any open wound."

Organic Juicing Diet
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 06/13/2009: Natalie from Cleveland, OH: "Hello,
My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer about 2 years ago and as soon as she was notified she went on an organic raw food juicing diet. She only drank organic juices and ate fruit and vegetables for the past 2 years. She drank apple/carrot juice and a green leaf veggie juice mixed with red cabbage and red apple. She alternated the apple/carrot juice with the green juice throughout the day, drinking about 8-10 juices daily with 3 meals in between. She also drank organic orange juice freshly squeezed every morning. She got the diet from Dr. Lorain Day. Dr. Day cured herself of breast cancer using this diet.
Everything has been going well so far, but in the past 6 months, my mom's gums have receded drastically. She has been to the dentist but he told her she does not have periodontal disease. She is afraid that if they get any lower then her teeth might start to fall out. Do you have any idea if she is missing any vitamins? Maybe she needs some oils, or B vitamins that she does not get from her diet. Please let me know if you can help.
She does not eat any sugar, animal products, or take any vitamins/minerals/oils. This is what Dr. Day did for when she beat breast cancer.
12/12/2009: Patricia from St. Petersburg, Florida, U.s.a. replies: "There's a possibility that she's low on minerals and omega oils. You don't mention how much protein she is getting. Check oil pulling cures here in Earth Clinic, I just read about gum and teeth great results. Good luck."

02/25/2010: Michael from Cuenca, Ecuador replies: "Gums receding is what I experienced from a no-animal-protein vegetarian diet. I did some research and found that it commonly happens when there is not enough protein in the diet. I added animal protein to my diet and the receeding gum problem stopped."
10/20/2011: Sindee from Carlsbad, California replies: "Well I would suggest adding lentils and beans in your diet. I make soups from all varities of lentils and beans (Indian & Mid-Eastern), add veggies and natural seasonings out of your herbal garden or kitchen cabinet. Healthier and body gets what it needs to protect you and your teeth."
10/21/2011: Funlovingal from Roseville, California replies: "My suggestion after reading books on dietary, i'd switch to vegan. MEAT & DAIRY cause issues that people arent even aware of unless they read books and about it. Read "The China Study". Studies after studies of evidence shows vegan diet can reverse/cure diabetes, heart disease, cancers, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, alzheimer. Your body is getting a lot of toxins from eating the commom Western diet. Casein is a cancer causing agent in dairy products; esp milk. Wheat grass is good for curing cancers and tumors and such. I drink 1 oz a day. I also drink a homemade probiotic daily. If you change your eating habits to vegan and drink 1 0z or 2 of wheatgrass I think you can start to heal your health from the inside out including the breast cancer. But seek professional help as well. I think if you change your eating habits to healthy, your body will begin to heal itself. The book can be found on Amazon for like $10. Please read it, it may change your life forever and your health. Also drink at least 32 oz of water daily to cleanse your system from toxins.

When denied this booster the immune system keeps them in check."

You advise the China Study, although I haven't read it I have read a lot of reviews and to be honest.... I must prefer books like Trick and Treat by Barry Groves! He advises the contrary and he explains why. Probably both books sound right.... Very hear to know what to do! Anyway, people have to see on which diet they feel better, I don't think that anyone can tell you what to do! And it is not only Trick and Treat that demystify the old beliefs that being a vegan or a vegetarian will change your health for the better.... Lots of literature out there!"
